Well, I had hoped I could simply edit my earlier post today, but alas, there's something wrong with my blog edit feature. Nothing comes up when I try to edit posts. So that means you get two posts today. Funny I know, since it's been ages since I was regularly blogging. As I've said before, between being busy as heck at work and home, and being a bit burned out with no creativitiy, I took a bit of a break. But don't worry, spring is heating up and I'm doing more gardening work in my limited free time, so expect more posts from here on out.
Anyway, I did take a swing around the garden today, and nothing surprised me.
First off, there's nothing left of my cauliflower. I should have started it much much earlier to get it growing. Not to mention keeping up with the predator urine to detract the raccoons, hehe. But look at these perennial green onions!
Oh, and as you can see, the jute twine I used to make the SFG grids have broken down much faster than I had expected. I've got more though. Gives me a good excuse to get my wife out into the garden again. See, she's got the spacial recognition to string a grid without cutting it. I don't.
Well, that's about it for the good news. Green onions, great...
Maybe the spinach is doing well, not sure. I doubt my wife would eat it. It's not as easy as it looks to get into there from the sides. It's not hard, just a process. Maybe I'll try to salvage it. Maybe I'll just rip it out and replant for spring. Not sure.
Oh boy, doesn't this look like a bomb went off? Nothing left of my wonderful lettuce. And my succession lettuce there in the middle? It hasn't grown an inch in over a month. Bah humbug. Ah well, according to Steve Solomon's book, it's about time for replanting for April and May lettuce harvest. I think I'll plant a mixture of lettuce, spinach and mustard greens. Doesn't that sound like a great salad? I'm getting hungry already. Come on spring!
Enjoy your garden!
